COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oude Kriek Boon is one of the finest examples of the 100% spontaneous fermentation fruit-Lambic style. 400 g of wild cherries per litre are fermented together with a blend of young and old Boon Lambic that has been aged in oak casks. After clarification, the Oude kriek is bottled and refermented. It is unsweetened, unfiltered, unpasteurised and has no artificial flavourings, preservatives or colourings added. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name. Pour slowly in a flute glass without disturbing the yeast sediment in the bottle. Cheers !

On tap at Brewdog, Cardiff. Half pint, pours strong red colour like strawberry jam with a deep pinkish head. Aromas of red berries, sour yeast funk. Medium sweet and medium sour, raspberry aftertaste in a long sour finish. Very enjoyable.

VDuquerroux (268) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle, 37.5cL. @Tresor_Belge, Pouançay, France. Pre-dinner drink. With dad, mom and grandma_I. A dark opaque pink beer with a medium white-pinkish head. Medium retention. Aroma : first vinegar, wood, then cherry, and alcohol in the end. Sourness develops itself from light to medium. Doesn’t hide light fruity sweetness. Light to medium body, medium texture, good carbonation, sour>sweet finish. Overall, refreshing through the tasting, strangely at the end I felt light alcohol which gave power. Nice aroma and taste. I really enjoy when a beer lets fruity sweetness exists by its own.

Lele (106) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 15, 2014
Capolavoro di kierk, praticamente dell’amarena liquida! Dal colore rosso amarena splendente con schiuma poco persistente. Fortissimo aroma di amarena da dolci. Gusto, guarda caso, proprio di amarena da dolci, con la seconda parte della bevuta in cui si avverte un gradevole acidulo (tanto per ricordarci che siamo comunque di fronte ad una lambic. Da abbinare assolutamente con dolci e biscotti.

Niet men favoriete kriekenbier, maar wel een kriekbier met een heel expliciete smaak

MrHult (218) - SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2014
Flaska från Systembolaget. Klar mörkröd vätska med stort rosa skum. Fyllig sur och lite jordig doft. Riktigt sur men eftersmaken är så pass god att jag vill ha mer.

didierlewallon (30) - ponferrada, SPAIN - AUG 3, 2014
Es una cerveza de color rojo rubí con una espuma de color rosado rojo. Aroma a cereza. Sabor a cereza, ligeramente amargo y carbonation mediana. Cerveza equilibrada, dulce y amargo, bastante delicioso, para los amantes del estilo Lambic, muy buena.

Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours clear dark red, thin pink head. Aromas are all sour cherry, light sherbet. Taste is sour cherry, other red fruit. Bitter finish. Good.

JakobHoumoller (17) - DENMARK - JUL 16, 2014
On tap. Deep clear ruby colour, similar to a red wine. The aroma has notes of sour cherries, cherry blossoms and tannins. The taste is oak, sour cherries finishing with a slightly sweet marzipan note. Doesn’t leave a lingering sourness, like some lambics.

jerd16 (194) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Girly confection in the glass. Rose body with small, yet lasting soapy pink head. Lots of sour cherry dominates aroma. Yoghurt. There’s a artificial sweetness that makes the cherry-aroma resemble sweets as opposed to real fruit. That knocks it down. Taste is VERY sweet, More fizzy cherry. Sourness is restrained, and the usual dry coating prevalent in lambics is also inhibited. It’s ok but the artificial sweetening undoes the good work.

klippx (50) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2014
Unsweetened, very very sour, more like a sour wine than a beer. Nice pink foam. Great cherry, good craftsmanship but oh so sour. My undeveloped taste buds prefer Timmermans.
